(2018-12-22) - Journal itemIn the last decade, reversed growth route has been found in many crystal growth processes. In these systems, a single crystal does not develop from a single nucleus. The precursor molecules/ions or nanocrystallites aggregate ...
Finding and proving the exact ground state of a generalized Ising model by convex optimization and MAX-SAT (2016-10-21) - Journal articleLattice models, also known as generalized Ising models or cluster expansions, are widely used in many areas of science and are routinely applied to the study of alloy thermodynamics, solid-solid phase transitions, magnetic ...

The corrosion behavior of a sputtered micrograin film on Fe-5Cr-5Si alloy in H2-CO2-H2S mixture at 700 °C (2017-10) - Journal articleThe corrosion behaviors of as-cast Fe-5Cr-5Si alloy with and without sputtered Fe-5Cr-5Si film in H2-CO2-H2S mixture at 700 °C are studied. The corrosion scale forming on the as-cast alloy is non-protective and mainly ...
